+ The Impact of the Math Fellows Math Goal 2 - Increase student achievement by improving teachers’ ability to implement effective instructional practices and increasing teacher content knowledge. 12% more students met the Standard for Mathematical Practice and 25% more students met the content standard STATE FELLOWS NETWORK OVERVIEW_10_07_ Fellows 8545 Teachers 46 MEC MSP 387 Teachers 9 RMCs52 Fellows9 RMCs Math Goal 3 – Increase capacity of teacher leaders to support CCSS-Mathematics professional learning. “One of the most important ideas that I encountered is your constant modeling of quality teaching strategies. Another would be the time my teachers are given to learn from each other. The “math” thinking and sharing will help the teachers be more comfortable in their classrooms.” ~ Principal
+ The Impact of the ELA Fellows : Pilot Year! 6 Fellows chosen in each ESD Integrated work with regional networks CCSS-ELA focus, with an eye on classroom practice : Full scale with common focus on the ELA shifts Regular practice with complex text and its academic language Reading, writing and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction STATE FELLOWS NETWORK OVERVIEW_10_07_2014
+ Fellows – Who Are You? They are teacher leaders who support district and school Washington State Learning Standards (CCSS) implementation and instructional shifts for English language arts and mathematics. They are part of a regional and state cadre who engage in common professional learning and leadership development. They return to the district and/or building and lead other professionals in professional development with respect to the common learning. STATE FELLOWS NETWORK OVERVIEW_10_07_2014
+ The Fellows Mission To gain common knowledge and expertise and provide leadership and support within individual school districts. Fellows’ goals include significantly impacting teaching and learning aligned with Washington State’s Learning Standards (CCSS ELA & CCSS M) to increase student achievement in mathematics and English Language Arts. STATE FELLOWS NETWORK OVERVIEW_10_07_2014
